Heard on my satellite radio feed last night that Tab Benoit is coming to Pensacola. Playing at the Vinyl Music Hall, Wednesday, April 6, 2011.
Appearing with the Voice of the Wetlands Allstars, it’ll be New Orleans blues by, as their website says, ‘legendary musicians who are at their musical prime.’
From his website . . .
Tab Benoit has assembled a stellar ensemble of fellow New Orleans musicians (including N.O. Legends which include Meters and Neville Brothers Cyril Neville, fellow roots-man Anders Osborne, fiddler Waylon Thibodeaux, influential New Orleans drummer Johnny Vidacovich, harmonica/ accordion player Jumpin Johnny Sansone, and New Orleans Mardi Gras Indian Big Chief Monk Boudreaux. to forge a musical plea about the fragile eco-system that is the increasingly depleted wetlands surrounding their hometown.
Cheap tickets ($20-25) for what ought to be a super show.
